Default Hawkfinder, Skymaster telemetry.

Anyone got any views on Hawkfinder or Skymaster telemetry ? I need to buy a set shortly and these seem to be good value.It will be used for Harris hawks so extreme range will hopefully not be a major issue.Although a set that will find in cover would be a great help.Anyone got any opinions on these systems ?
Cheers Kev.

Leave well alone, buy cheap, buy twice.

Consider buying a quality transmitter on the same frequency as others in your area if a full set is out of your price range.

FHF has got it right.

I bought one as part of my start up kit, no confidence in it at all. I am now looking to buy some quality transmitters to use with my mentors receiver.

The Icom IC R10 is the one I use, has been discontinued now for the last few years, is a very good receiver. Unfortunately the model which has superseeded the R10 isn't as good!
